Jurgen Klopp senses the outbreak of coronavirus and its resultant financial crisis will prevent Liverpool from dipping into the transfer market.

With the 2019/20 Premier League season fast approaching its conclusion, many teams have already started making plans, especially in squad recruitment, for the next season.

Liverpool have already been confirmed as champions, courtesy of Chelsea getting the better of Manchester City at Stamford Bridge last week.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side have become a dominant force not only in England but also in Europe, having won Champions League Club World Cup, and now the much-awaited Premier League.

The Reds’ successes have come as a result of several big-money signings over the last few years, most notably Virgil van Dijk, Alisson Becker, and Fabinho.

Unfortunately, the recent pandemic will not allow them to spend extravagantly anymore. Klopp, as a result, now has planned a change in strategy to use the club’s youth product.

“COVID has of course influenced both sides with ins and outs, that is completely normal,” he said, as Evening Standard reports.

“It’s just not likely that it will be the most busy summer in the world. But maybe at a later point in the year, if the transfer window is still open and we know more, then maybe something could happen.

“We don’t have a first XI, I’d say we have a first 16 or 17, where they can all play to the same level. We try to find solutions internally.”
